How to Be Like Walt

Just finished the book How to Be Like Walt: Capturing the Disney Magic Every Day of Your Life. Author: Pat Williams

I highly recommend this book. It has a biography feel to it and it has so many insights from people that knew Walt that it brings him to life. Having read a couple of different biographies on Walt I would have to say this one felt more personal as opposed to just factual.

One of the final chapters was on the last year of Walt's life and it was particularly moving when the author shared comments from family and cast members who were working at Disney in 1966.

Again, highly recommend

Just started reading it. My daughter got it for me as a present. So far I'm really enjoying it.
